Help me name my new bike...

So after spending 28 years not knowing how to ride, cuda2k finally convinced me it was time to learn. We purchased a new Electra Townie 21, in baby blue pearl, and so far the lessons are going well. I'd like for my new bike to have a name, but I'm stumped as to what to name it. All I know is that if it has a gender, it's a girl bike. The song "Pale Blue Eyes" is stuck in my head right now, but I'm not naming my bike Lou Reed.

Thoughts?

The bike is Misty Blue. Steal a character or place from the movie Play Misty for Me, such as Evelyn (female lead) or The Sardine Factory (bar where Clint Eastwood meets Evelyn).

Odd it didn't give me Big Fat Matt as that is my real name. I got the Purveyor of Suffering... I like that.

I think Dexter is an appropriate name for your bike, happyfeet.

So you're saying you enjoy riding your toy?
I'd like to watch you do that.
